    We expects more. Waiter was more arrogant than friendly. Instead of feeling welcomed, felt like we were talked down to and we are friendly people, in a good mood so it was odd that he felt a need to act so uppity towards us. We didn’t let him change our mood. We all just said we would prefer not to spend $200 on 3 people and feel like we were bothering the waiter. We had 2 lobster and crawfish pot pie, which were very good. I had the vegetarian dish which was delicious but kept getting told by the waiter I should really consider adding the chicken. No thank you, I love vegetarian meals. He highly recommended the fries, they were average at best and over priced. We only tried them and decided not worth the calories or stomach real estate. Grits were very good and Brussels sprouts great. Seats covers were ripped and kept snagging my clothes. Honestly, would have given 4 stars if the waiter was not a downer and a 5 if their pricing was more reasonable. It’s over priced for what it is.

    We wanted to love this place, but it was meh. The food was o.k. Our server was odd, threw the dessert menu at us and walked away without saying a thing. We were celebrating two birthdays .. nothing. He threw the tab down and before people could set their cards down, he tried to snatch again. Very off-putting.

    The food is good and the service is very good. I don't think the food is exceptional or special, but consistently fine. If you are in the neighborhood and hungry, it's a solid option. I wouldn't go out of the way to eat it though.

    Not impressed at ALL. Service was so slow it took us 2 1/2 hours to get a meal. We had to repeatedly ask for our server. Our order was mixed up. The server blamed the chef. Waste of time and money. Don’t recommend it.

    Made a reservation through OpenTable and extremely upset that we were kept waiting at the bar while other twosomes kept getting seated. We waited much past our reservation time and somehow still no table for us while others got seated and definitely with a number of unoccupied tables (I highly suspect racism as we were the only customers of color) We ended up eating at the bar and thankfully the bartender was very attentive and got our order in quickly because by this point we were upset and hungry. Food overall was ok - very salty as others have reviewed, and the only highlights were the biscuits.

    Our server, Jessica was great. She let us know the specials and gave great recommendations. The biscuits were amazing. I had the fried chicken with collard greens which were delicious. We went for my daughter’s birthday. Great food, great service along with great company made for a perfect night.

    Although the menu is small and simple we always enjoy fixe. The rolls are an absolute must and we also enjoyed the deviled eggs. Table ordered the salmon; the halibut; fried chicken and the pot pie. Both fish were delicious; fried chicken was on point and pot pie; yummy 😋. Finished it off with the cobbler. Warm and sweet goodness!

    Our server Kat was very good! We celebrated my retirement and my daughter’s birthday and she made it so special for us. Although, she was very busy and taking care of several tables, she made us feel like we were the only table in the restaurant. I will personally recommend this restaurant and if you do go ask for Kat (bartender), you will NOT be disappointed.

    The service was phenomenal. I was excited to go back again. For some reason, the food was not as great as I remember it. Sadly, I don’t think I’d go back for anything beyond the biscuits and brussel sprouts, which were outstanding. The chicken lacked hella flavor AND we were charged $1 for a tablespoon of hot sauce to help give it some flavor. That was disappointing.

    Such a great experience. First time there, and from the bar service to table side service was above and beyond. Waitress knew it was our first time and made sure we understood the dishes and was having an amazing time. GET THE BISCUITS!!! My only negative is that we ran out of time before our show at ACL started did not allow us time for dessert. Although we were too full to even share a dessert.

    Decor ambience lighting are all perfect for a private evening meal. Food is grits and biscuits and pork chops and fried chicken - but it’s all presented beautifully and quality is great. It’s a little pricey- it then you are downtown and the decor is great… so - take your pick. I’ll go back for sure. Also - valet there - its cheaper than local area parking.

    Came in with no really high expectation and left feeling the place was pretty exceptional. The homemade biscuit is a must have. Probably the best biscuit I've had in a long while. Had the cured salmon and it was cooked to perfection. I always worry ordering salmon bc most restaurants tend to overcook salmon. The others in my group ordered the fried chicken, lobster & crawfish pot pie, and the red fish. All were so good. Drinks were superb! Hats off to the Chef and team. Will come back again and try the pork chop!
